All during the Christmas break we have been pressing Vincent to do his extra homework. It was basically a Bingo sheet with cute, little jobs or homework, like cleaning his room or reading for twenty minutes.
Well, Vincent refused to do his homework till yesterday and then he procrastinated and wanted to finish the rest of his Bingo board in his before care program.
And to top off this morning, Vincent couldn’t find his binder with all of his work in it. It was a hell of a break and one heck of a morning looking for a damn binder and nagging my son about the importance of homework.
So, I picked him up this evening and asked him if he finished his Bingo sheet. He looked at me and smiled and said,
‘Yup! I got five in and row and I left my binder at school over the break, so I didn’t lose it! And guess what?! I found my Bingo sheet in my binder… I did Nicholas’ homework! I helped Nicholas get five in a row!’
Great. All that nagging about how homework and education is important and my boys are cheating in kindergarten and 2nd grade…
Until next time,
Let’s change that D into a solid B… do you have a red pen?
